Trump attacked Canada’s steel and aluminum industries will illegal tariffs, attacked our aerospace jobs with unproved dumping tariffs, demanded concessions in NAFTA — and nearly half of Scheer’s supporters like him or aren’t sure. Whose side are they on?

Give it time. But also remember Liberals and Conservatives don’t defend themselves with spitballs.

I forgot about that weird comment. And telling nuns about how she talks women out of abortions.

Sorry, not sorry: Wilson-Raybould and Philpott are still persona non grata, but Trudeau extends forgive-and-forget to Gerald Butts

She’s still very positive, but seems to have peaked. Don’t think Warren deserves all the credit.

Why are Conservative-run Canadian provinces turning down federal cash? The answer’s in the Republican playbook.

Since winning his seat, Singh’s positives have trended up, his negatives gone down. Still far less known than the other two.

As people get to know Scheer, his negatives rise faster than his positives. Still stuck on the Harper script. And Ford doesn’t help. .../3

Trudeau’s positive impression has evaporated, dipping negative during the SNC scandal and continuing. Can’t name any worthy battle for Canadians he spent his political capital on..../3

You know, sometimes I get the sense Justin Trudeau isn’t very sincere about what he says in public

After media attacks on “Jody” by an anonymous Liberal insider, Trudeau said “the sexist comments, the racist comments that have been made by anonymous sources are unacceptable and I condemn them in the strongest possible terms.” Who made those comments?

As an Australian I find it odd that Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Pressley and Tlaib are seen as the “far left” when they’re just fighting for things that, well, pretty much every other developed country has had for years. Just my two cents.

Trump slashed taxes on corporate profits in 2017, saying the cuts would “pay for themselves.” Here’s what really happened: revenue is down by more than $100B. Why does this matter to Albertans? B/c Kenney also said his cuts would pay for themselves. They won’t. .

Most Indigenous youth Trudeau talks to just want "a place to store their canoes and paddles so they can connect back out on the land."

It voters keep settling between bad and worse, Canada will get worse.

Today’s PMO media event will have Justin Trudeau hugging a Canada Food Guide and sonorously declaring “no issue is more important to Canada than the relationship with the Canada Food Guide”
